“If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door in the country.” – Harvey Milk
Harvey Milk was one of the most prolific Jewish LGBTQIA+ activists of our time and made history as the first openly gay elected official in the United States when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977. His remarkable career standing up for all marginalized people was tragically cut short when he was assassinated on Nov 27, 1978, nearly a year after taking office.
Join Tribe 12 and Repair the World Philadelphia for a screening of Milk, a biographical film of Harvey Milk’s life as an activist in honor of the 41st anniversary of his assassination. We’ll light candles in memory of him as well as the hundreds of trans people that have been murdered this year for Trans Day of Remembrance, watch the film, and have a discussion with our fellow LGBTQIA+ activists about the issues facing our Jewish and queer communities today and how we can continue to engage in Milk’s mission of tikkun olam (repairing the world).
